Lockerbie relatives urge inquiry into ‘suppressed evidence’ – The Guardian

Documents given to Megrahi’s defence lawyers a month before he dropped his appeal show that government scientists had found significant differences between a bomb timer fragment allegedly found after the attack and the type supplied to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s former regime, Swire said.

A new account of the bombing and Megrahi’s conviction, Megrahi: You Are My Jury, published in Edinburgh on Monday, alleges that the Crown Office, the police and Ministry of Defence scientists failed to disclose numerous pieces of evidence that damaged their case against the Libyan. Speaking at the book’s launch with John Moseley, a fellow campaigner, Swire, chairman of UK Families Flight 103, said there were “mountains of evidence that doesn’t seem to be right and that needs to be examined”.
